Birthday Card using Cricut Pagoda

The slew of fall Birthdays continues. This card is for my Husband's Grandmother and he even helped make it! We settled on this multi-fold card that features a panda holding a gift with the Kanji word/symbol for "celebrate" on the front. This card is perfect for his Grandmother who loves Asian decor -- she even has bamboo stenciled on her walls!

Project Details:
Cartridge: Pagoda, Create A Critter (For bow on present only)
Card Size: 4.5" x 6" when folded in half. Started with a 12" x 4.5" rectangle.
Panda: Pagoda Cartridge, page 36, cut at 2.75". I used foam squares to pop him off the card. *Remember to just stick the squares on half his body since the other side hangs over the edge of the card.
Bamboo: Pagoda, page 48, cut at 4".

Building: Pagoda, page 60, cut at 2.75". We used blue vellum behind the windows and openings on the building to jazz is up a little.
Giftbox: This is the present the panda is holding and it's semi-custom. From Pagoda, I cut out the Kanji word "Celebrate" at .75". You can find this on page 27, using the [shift key] +[ Kanji word key]. I put a piece of shiny light purple paper behind the kanji cut out and used this same paper to cut out a bow for the gift box. The bow is from the Create A Critter cartridge, pg 27, accessory + shift, cut at 1".
Misc: Stamped "Happy Birthday" in chocolate brown.
